Ra says that all life must evolve through eight densities.
It was you and I, he says, who created this Universe. Those are our stars we dream on. We are the very same Infinite Intelligence that started it all way back when, and we are on a return path back to that selfsame Infinity — after which, we will recycle and start all over. Alpha and Omega, it never ends, as we cycle over and over through these eight densities. And it is always the action of free will on Love that propels our energies through the densities, creating the evolutionary movement.
Here’s a brief review of what Ra claims are the stages of this multibillion-year cycle:
- First Density — The four alchemical elements of earth (minerals), air (wind), fire, and water. The fire and wind act on the minerals and water, propelling evolution to consciousness and the Second Density.
- Second Density — The beginning of animals and plants. This stage of evolution on earth took 4.6 billion years.
- Third Density — Humankind’s current stage. This is the density of self-awareness and self-consciousness. The two fundamental necessities are rational thinking and intuitive thinking. Through applying both those qualities, we’re supposed to figure out that we’re part of each other, which leads to the experience of Love.
Interestingly enough, the purpose of having a physical body that grows weak with age, according to Ra, was to move us toward compassion and caring, as we watch each other’s bodies deteriorating. Once we learn this quality of Love, we then move on to the higher densities, where our incarnations are considerably longer.
The cycle for all incarnations in the Third Density, Ra says, is 75,000 years.
- Fourth Density — Perceiving others as part of the Self. Here is a plane of compassion, where we achieve the ability to understand the sorrows of the Third Density. Individual differences are still pronounced, but harmony is created through group consensus, because people know what others are thinking.
As the Fourth Dimension evolves, the group of mind/body/spirit complexes (i.e. people) become able to form a ”social memory complex,” where all experiences of each entity are available to the whole.
The typical time for one incarnation in the Fourth Density is 90,000 years, and the entire cycle of experience for all incarnations in this density takes 30 million Earth years.
- Fifth Density — Wisdom and instant manifestation. The lessons of compassion learned in the Fourth Density have led to wisdom in the Fifth. Fifth Density entities may dissolve one manifestation and create another at will.
- Sixth Density — The experience of the Self as Light. Ra is a Sixth Density entity. This cycle of experience is 2.5 million years.
- Seventh Density — Culmination. The Seventh Density is the completed being, ”the Creator who knows Itself and compacts into the One Creation once again, as it readies to enter the Eighth Density.”
- Eighth Density — Return to infinity. According to Ra, there is a mystery here, which cannot be put into words. Just as in the musical scale, the Eighth Density is also the First Density of the next octave.
Since each entity has free will, the time lines given above are flexible. No entities can be forced to move up the density ladder until they are ready and have chosen to do so.
Higher-density entities, on the Sixth level and beyond, can serve as the Higher Selves for lower-dimensional entities. Sometimes we refer to them as Spirit Guides.
There is an incomprehensible majesty to the whole scenario. Here we are in the Third Density, with bodies made up of First and Second Density materials from our ancient past, with a High Self that represents the future self — what we will grow into.
